Chinese nuclear experts think about nuclear weapons very differently from their U.S. counterparts. They use different terminology and contrasting security paradigms to discuss and make decisions on nuclear policy. How can Washington and Beijing promote an effective dialogue and shared understanding despite their disparate approaches? 

Join us for the latest discussion in our series on Chinese nuclear thinking. Li Bin will present the findings of his recent, groundbreaking article on the topic, Linton Brooks will comment, and Rose Gottemoeller will offer remarks on the Sino-U.S. dialogue on nuclear issues. Carnegie President William J. Burns will introduce the event, and Toby Dalton will moderate.
